STEP 4: You can now refer back to the policy anywhere on the website by typing the tag [ legal_privacy ] into a text module ( but remove spaces within the square brackets - these have been added so the tag will display correctly on this page).

STEP 2: A new window containing the module settings will open on-screen. Within the CONTENT tab, you'll see an option named + ADD OPT-IN OPTION.
